Because, uh, we don’t see monkeypox as a threat, like how we didn’t see MERS-CoV as one either! And this government agency, like ALL of the DDP, still operates on, HINDSIGHT and screwed are, WE the people! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
At the start of May, monkeypox had started spreading outside of the tradition areas of the pandemic, and there’s the community spreading cases, and it’d caused the attention of the global community. So, is monkeypox worth our worrying over? What are the misunderstanding, and the traps? What should we be prepared on?
Although, there’s only just one fatality to date, but, there were the children who’d been placed in the I.C.U. after contraction. Children, pregnant women, and those with a weaker immunity are the at-risk groups. Other than the skin problems that may cause the aches and pains, the dehydration, the loss of proteins, and the reinfections, it can also damage the eye sight, or cause pneumonia, inability to breathe, hepatitis, and encephalitis, etc., etc., etc. Once there is an increase in the number of cases, the families, the medical professionals, as well as everybody else in the society will be impacted with the risks of contraction.
The problem with monkeypox is that there’s a long incubation period, that it’s not spread widely enough, and it couldn’t be like MERS-CoV, initiating the border controls, to block the disease out of the country, but, in the means of animals and humans transmission, it can easily transmit from the wildlife or the pets to human, as monkeypox makes its way into the local communities, it would be impossible to eliminate, and thus it will become, regional, and exist long-term.
And once it started spreading, it would cause a second damage to the communities, the medical care systems, for example, the workers in the medical industries, the janitorial workers will be faced with a new threat of occupational hazards, and the laundromat may also be impacted as well.
In the means of prevention, there’s a need to rely on both the public health services as well as the medical treatment facilities. Setting up a system of reporting is the most basic of prevention, but, with only the definitions of the disease, and ordering the medical treatment facilities to report on the cases is not enough, we need to heighten the alerts of the locals, as well as the doctors in all medical treatment units, to send in the tests, to diagnose early, to quarantine as needed, to limit the spread, and through the detailed reports, to stop the spread, to prevent the virus to root in the local communities.
On the means of prevention, there’s the need of vaccinating all who are in the social circles of the individual who’d contracted the virus, to cut off the chain of spread. W.H.O. advised those who came into contact, to get vaccinated within four days of contact, but no more than fourteen days, before the symptoms set in, through the immediate vaccinations, to prevent the onset, and the spread.
As for the high risk individuals, such as the professionals in medical care, the lab workers, the operators of the labs, even gay males, can receive the vaccines prior to exposures.
Theoretically, chickenpox vaccines can prevent monkeypox, but, the second, third generations of safer vaccines should be used. In treatment, due to the limited research of efficacy of the medications, W.H.O. advises that only the severely symptomatic, and those who are at higher risk is given.
As what most of us had learned from MERS-CoV: the outbreaks are really sly; it would cause the multiple impacts on the medical care provision systems, the societies; to deal with the outbreaks, the easiest means is through stopping the spread before it began on a community level; we need to get the three tools (the vaccines, the test kits, the medicines) we need to prevent the monkeypox from becoming a pandemic like MERS-CoV.
Although, monkeypox isn’t as quickly to spread out like MERS-CoV, there’s no need to get everybody vaccinated, we still need to prevent the virus from rooting down, and the key to this, is the vaccines. As the monkeypox started spreading globally for over a month to date, as the virus is already at our gates, the government is still talking of “we will have the vaccines by the end of the year!”, and clearly, for the six months following now, we can’t even start preparing for the preventions of exposures, or the treatment after we are exposed. And, the constant missing out on the timelines, it’d put the country’s people, the medical professionals at war, without our, needed, ammunitions, when will the CDC learn?
The answer is: NEVER! Because the head of the CDC, Chen is already CHECKED out, with his sight set on the end-of-year mayoral elections, leaving we the people, without a single clue, and, the CDC app, can’t even answer what monkeypox is, because the systems isn’t updated yet, yeah, that’s, stupid all right, and, we are still, all FUCKED up, by the DDP, because everybody in the government is from the party, and, from the MERS-CoV cases, we can see, just how incompetent, this DDP government truly is, and, we the people are all going to D-I-E!
